Local media reported that two children and a woman were killed and several people were injured in Ralja, 18 miles south of Belgrade, when a missile struck residential buildings. Tanjug said three people were killed and two injured when NATO bombed two villages in the area southeast of Pristina, Kosovo’s provincial capital. The reports could not be independently confirmed.
